Posted on Tuesday, September 13 2005 @ 2:46 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Lexmark has presented the P450 inkjet photo printer which is world's first printer with a built-in CD photo burner. The printer can read a variety of flash memory cards, including CompactFlash I & II, SmartMedia, Sony Memory Stick, Sony Memory Stick Pro, SD, MMC, xD, Sony Memory Stick Duo, Mini SD and Sony Memory Stick Duo Pro.

The printer enables you to preview and edit photos on a large 2.4-inch flip-up LCD display and it gives you the option to either burn the photos to a CD-R or print them, without needing to boot-up your computer. It's also possible to print photos from your cell phone by using a Bluetooth adapter.

"The Lexmark P450 brings more photo processing functions to the home. People can now save and organize their digital photos on CD, print from a cell phone, view their photos on a television and much more. The Lexmark P450 is quite intuitive, easy to use and affordably priced," said Najib Bahous, Lexmark vice president and president of its Consumer Printer Division.

Here's a short look at the features of the P450:
  • Save digital photos to CD with built-in CD burner.
  • Print photos directly from a Bluetooth technology cell phone with the purchase of an optional adaptor.
  • Print photos from virtually any digital camera product through its PictBridge port or from memory cards.
  • Print photos in JPEG format from a USB flash drive.
  • View photos on the TV using a standard video cable (not included with the printer).
  • See and edit photo images easily with a large 2.4-inch color LCD screen.
  • Edit photos using crop, rotate, color fix and red-eye removal features along with popular photo effects such as sepia and antique gray.
  • The printer will be available in October for $199.

    that is dumb.

    what happens when the cd burner break? Is it possible to replace it?

      None of my optical disk readers has ever failed.. Why do you assume the cd burner will break so easily? Normally it should last more than enough.

      Its not any dummer than the all in one scanner/copy/fax/whatever. Chances are the cd burner will out last the printer part anyway.
